    Nice guy, seems to have a good understanding of a broad range of literature. Presents both sides of issues which encourages critical thought and intellectual growth. Can be funny in a witty way as well

    I have had Troy for many classes over the years. He is very knowledgable and passionate about his job and it shows! It can be lecture heavy at times and he (pre-covid) doesnt post lecture content on blackboard making some courses very challenging to study due to so much conent. Despite this, his courses are great and you will actually learn things!

    One of the more relaxing classes I had. The tests can be tricky at times but you can do well as long as you attend class and pay attention. The lectures are long and can get boring for people not interested in the weather but for me it was fine. Mark made a lot of jokes and strayed off topic sometimes but it made the class a little more fun.

    Great prof, only thing is the lecture slides are posted online but missing most of the content so you pretty much have to go to class or else you can fall behind quick. some of the stuff is pretty boring but Troy does a good job spicing or trying to spice things up.

    Troy is the best prof, but you do have to love the material. I did and found his class to be brilliant. He's incredibly smart and his lectures are a job to listen to if you are a fan of economic geography. You'll learn a lot, but pay attention. Super nice chill guy

    Mark (Troy) is the best teacher I had throughout my education, if you are not a slacker, enjoy being intellectually challenged and generally enjoy theory on human behavior, you will love his classes. His exams are challenging, however i did the best overall in his classes as opposed to other classes due to how engaged i was.

    This is the most boring material I've ever studied. The text book was weak and Troy just glosses over his overheads without many real life examples. Very heavy on economic theory. If you like Globalization then this class is for you. Three exams and four written assignments. Show up and study your notes for an A-. A lot of jargon and concepts.

    Troy was a good prof.. Make sure you are clear on things before you leave class. He is very hard to get ahold of by email and doesn't answer the questions you ask over email. His tests are very hard but he seems will help you out on the marking. If you do bad on the mc he will mark lighter on the written. Interesting lectures

    In Class Notes (NOT POSTED) EXAM CONTENT Superior intellectual class conversations He is what a professor really should be - educational yet challenging Not for weak students, be prepared to work for your grade. VERY Fair. Lectures are genuinely enjoyable Provides exam study guide - if he lists it don't just learn it.... master it!

    This guy somehow convinced me I actually not only liked the idea of sociology and human geography, but I could be good at it too. His lectures are typically super casual, thought provoking, if a discussion gets going, he goes with it, h uses great examples, he's traveled, knows his stuff and will never swear allegiance to the queen.

    Troy is a great prof. Always really excited about what he is teaching, and loves to make his class laugh. Although the material in this class was a litle dry, Troy made sure that he got it across in an interesting way to all of his students!

    Phenomenal instructor. Very knowledgeable and easy to understand. Hilarious during class discussions, which were a HUGE part of the courses I took with him. Awesome instructor and I would definitely recommend him to all students looking to pursue geography as a field of study.

    Second time with him as my prof. He's a great prof, you will write extensive notes, but they are crystal clear and essentially all you need in order to do well on exams. Even if you BS your way through written questions he WILL find some marks to give you. EconGeog is pretty boring though if you don't dig history.
